NCMA’s World Congress is hailed as a must-attend event because it is the most comprehensive training event available for contract management, procurement, and acquisition professionals. With over 20 educational tracks, content is offered for professionals at each and every stage of their careers—and with over 1,500 attendees, there are vast networking opportunities! World Congress was recently selected as one of the “Top 25 Government Conferences of 2013” by GovLoop’s founder and president, Steve Ressler. Participants will earn 20 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours by attending this four-day event.
NCMA’s new and improved chapter leader training series launches this summer! With this new format, chapter leader training will now occur three times annually, providing increased development opportunities to NCMA’s chapter leaders.

All chapter leaders are encouraged to attend this training event, conveniently paired with World Congress 2013. Participants will earn 8.5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours by attending this two-day event!
